Primarily made up of fiercely loyal Puritans, the County Committees were efficient in reaching the monthly quotas set by Parliament. Financial quotas that scaled the country and permitted carte blanche in the form of ordinance ‘to employ however men they saw fit’; securing the manpower for greatest efficiency. Particularly cruel to royalists, in 1643, a wife in Kent petitioned against a 5% charge on an already seized estate which had left them with no means to raise funds to pay. The petition is illustrative of the support against the ruthless and illogical enforcement of the County Committees, in turn increasing support for Charles. Additionally, 1643 saw an ordinance to seize all horses in London, despite the London majority being in favour of Parliament they still suffered similar ordinances which had become commonplace as the war progressed, all strictly enforced by the County Committees.
Robin could kill the Sheriff to satisfy his personal vendetta. The Merrymen could also start taxing to provide more resources but then they would be just like the Sheriff. The present strategy is obsolete and needs to be adjusted to the course that has been changing because travelers are becoming smarter and his growing team needs more resources. 4.Why not try to end
Robin Hood (Case 20) Part 1 Intro Robin Hood forged together a band of Merrymen to help him fight off the Sheriff and his administration. With the growing popularity and population of his Merrymen, Robin Hood has come across some issues that need to be addresses and resolved. Analysis The increasing size of the band was significant for having the upper hand on the Sheriff’s administration. However, with a larger number they were running out of food and supplies. Also, the more Merrymen there were the less control Robin Hood had; losing his upper hand could lead to a collapse of his plan to take out the Sheriff.
Those problems and the fact that Sheriff was becoming stronger and better organized, and with that he probing for ban´s weaknesses. So Robin had to find solution to solve the problems. 2) Do Robin Hood and the Merrymen need a new mission? New objectives, a new strategy? Yes , they need a new mission , that help them to achieve new objectives, but those objectives just can be accomplish with a new strategy, because the present strategy is good to increasing the size of the band and have more people, but at the same time that also have consequences.
Robin Hood also faced another issue with his direct competition known as the evil Sheriff. The Sherriff was consistently attempting to put the Merrymen out of business and with his vast wealth and connections he was beginning to gain a foothold over the Merrymen. 1. Do Robin Hood and the Merrymen need a new mission? New objectives?
If anyone was to attempt to stand up to him he would kill them or torture them. Feudal System Every now and then William was too lazy and tired to do things himself so he hired 2 Lords to do his job and in return, the Lords would receive a large piece of land. The Lords also had the same problem sometimes so they hired 2 Knights each and offered them a smaller piece of land. Even though there was 2 of the Knights, they needed a rest from time to time, so they gave a little piece of land to the Pheasants for doing some work for them. This system was a very good system and worked well because everyone was happy with what they got in return.
Strategy: * Several barons would like to release King Richard, so form a alliance with Robin Hood (Merrymen). * Robin Hood spread his group to become larger and larger, even outside Sherwood Forest. * The main objective of Robin Hood is kill sheriff (Defensive). 4. Why not try to end the campaign by killing the Sheriff?
This not only gains a new tool to use but also gains you more strings pull and ways to do so. Like the revolutionaries of the past who fed the British after the Battle of Saratoga , the ploy is to make the opponents not to want to fight you, but see how you work in a way they do not want to battle any
This devastated the land, so that instead of the people of the North fighting against him, they had to concentrate on just surviving instead. To keep control of the country, William I designed stone castles that were stronger against the fire arrows and battering rams that the Saxons used in battle. It was easier for William to take control of the wooden Saxon forts. William’s men built stone castles on hilltops that gave the soldiers a good view of what was happening around them. They could see enemy troops before they got too close.
This has caused many problems for Robin Hood. Discipline was becoming harder to enforce because of the sheer size of the group. The group is also faced with lower revenue and increased costs. The organization was beginning to exceed the food capacity of the forest so supplies had to be obtained from outlying villages. Some of the other issues that Robin Hood is faced with are whether or not to impose a fixed transit tax, what to do about the growing strength of the Sheriff, and if he should accept the Barons offer to join in freeing King Richard.
